Dreamless by Josephine Angelini

Dreamless - Josephine Angelini

I so should've stopped at Starcrossed like the lot of you did, but no, I had this stupid thing called hope that these characters weren't gonna drive me bonkers and the plot wasn't going to be dreadfully boring. I was wrong once again. DREAMLESS wasn't all that I thought it was going to be.

I was extremely disappointed in the drama that happened at the end of Starcrossed, well I might as well say middle into end. I thought I'd give DREAMLESS a try, but I was having the same old problems. The beginning was so damn slow, but I'd have to say the first chapter was my favorite part of the book, because it was the only part that got a good reaction out of me.

One look from Lucas and she felt stronger. Alive again. She could hear him chuckling to himself as he walked on, almost smug, like he knew exactly how much he affected her.

It was revealed in Starcrossed that Helen and Lucas are cousins. I'm sorry, but I don't believe that nonsense. First off, I don't trust that woman who is suppose to be her mother and second, there was a lot of drama in the beginning that pointed that they weren't really related. I don't know but that spelled, "complete bullshit" to me. It was something I just couldn't really believe.

“Am I really one of your best friends?” he asked quietly. “Well, yeah,” Helen replied, feeling jittery, like maybe she shouldn’t admit to caring for him so much.

In DREAMLESS I also hated the family's attitude with it all. It's like they didn't care all that much and they were really heartless most of the time in my eyes/ I get it. They cousins, but you don't have to act like it's the end of the world. Let the, deal with it on their own. Honestly a relationship is no one's business but the one's involved in said relationship.

“Look, do you really want to argue all night about whether or not girls ever return clothes they borrow from guys? Because from what I’ve noticed, one night can be an actual eternity down here.”

The plot of the book ended up being Helen going to the Underworld, coming back, rinse and repeat. It was like I said dreadfully boring. The only good part of the book I guess was Orion. He would have to be my only favorite character in the entire series. That's how bad the characters decisions and attitudes are pissing me off. Orion had this light to him that I liked. He was really fun and her flirted and joked a lot. I really liked him! Best character!

Unfortuately, one character to love isn't enough for me. I honestly don't think I will be continuing with this series. I was very disappointed with the sequel. Josephine Angelini's idea of a Greek Mythology Young Adult book is not one I was fascinated with. I must say I don't get the popularity with the Starcrossed Series, but I am glad to be done with it for I am not enjoying it.
